One problem that many people have is that they see all of these things as a way to make you happy. Do you feel this way too? Are you always thinking that once you are making a certain amount of money your life will suddenly change and you will automatically become happy? If so, you are not alone, unfortunately this is not the way you should be thinking.
Let’s look at this with a new perspective. Are you honestly happy when you are sick or feeling tired? Are you truly happy being obese? The answer to these questions is normally NO.
In order to feel happier in these situations you need to be in good health. When you think about it, it makes perfect sense. When you are healthy you feel great and you have the energy to get things done.
This is why it is so important to take the time to work on improving your health. This includes making time for exercise and learning how to eat a healthy and well balanced diet.
It is really easy to start working on your health and research has shown that it is the first 20 minutes of exercise that really benefits you. Can you find the time to fit in a 20 minute walk each day? Once you start doing this regularly you will begin to look forward to your walks.
It generally takes about 21 days to form a new habit. What that means is that if you start walking today, by this time next month walking will have become a daily habit. This takes nothing but your time and a little effort to set that time aside each day.
When you are first starting out you should aim to walk at least 3 days a week for 10 or 20 minutes each time. You don’t want to overdo any exercise and run the risk of injury. So walk for however long your fitness level allows.
Once you start feeling healthier you will notice that you also feel happier. The benefit of this is as you feel happier you are more productive and you will start to succeed at different things.
